There are 10 times as many outside tables here now as in my photo on here. But at 5pm they are all taken - so sitting inside.
Buxton - Trolltunga6.30ExcellentFrom keg. I've been putting off trying this challenging-sounding Gooseberry Gose for too long. Inevitably it is lovely. The sourness not overpowering. A pinch of salt. And lovely fresh gooseberry.
Turning Point - Session Pale4.30GoodMurky gold. Fruity, with zero bitterness.

Shaping up to be a busy evening here. The bar counter is due soon to be extended and an upstairs seating area to be brought into use.
Crate - Caramel Milk Stout3.00ExcellentBlack, creamy, sweet toffee. Quite light in body.

Nice weather and the outside seats are popular in the late afternoon.
Wild Card - DDH IPA6.10ExcellentAmber-coloured. Well-hopped but also has mellowness and caramel.
Tiny Rebel - Lush4.00ExcellentThe first time I've seen this beer in cask. It is indeed lush.

Early evening and I squeeze on to the end of a table with my pizza.
Siren Craft - Liquid Mistress Red IPA5.80ExcellentI cannot find fault with this beer.
Wild Card - Table Beer2.70ExcellentFrom a keg of some kind. Low-strength perfection.
Track - Half Dome Pale5.30ExcellentAnother excellent beer.
Magic Rock - Common Grounds5.40Not Tried

Relatively quiet in here tonight.
Magic Rock - Common Grounds Triple Coffee Porter5.40ExcellentStrongly flavoured.
Crate - Chocolate Orange Stout6.50Not Tried
09 Dec 2018 (Stephen Harris)
Unusually quiet in here on a Sunday evening and I took advantage of the lack of waiting time for a pizza to indulge myself.
Crate - Chocolate Orange Stout6.50ExcellentThis was one of my favourite beers tried at the recent Pig’s Ear Beer Festival and it was nice to savour a whole pint of it in more relaxed surroundings.
Cloudwater - A-W18 One-off ESB 5.50ExcellentHazy brown in colour. More evidence of Cloudwater’s return to cask beer production. This is a robust Bitter with a lot of hop in the nose and a mostly malty flavour.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Hackney, Greater London, E9 5EN.

Hackney Wick has seen a transformation from grim area of industrial units to thriving ‘creative’ quarter. Only problem is, all the traditional pubs had closed down. The Crate Brewery was established in July 2012 in a former industrial premises and is a combination of brewpub and pizza restaurant, although with a predominately ‘pub’ feel. There is a large, high-ceilinged room and outside seating (some in boats) beside the canal. Initially the five-barrel brewery kit was visible in a room alongside, but in July 2013 the brewery moved to larger premises nearby. Inside, the furniture is made of recycled packing cases and pallets. It stands literally at the gate of the Olympic Park.

We have visited this pub 51 times, seen 90 different beers and tried 52 of them.
